Denim Focused, Get the Look: David Beckham & the Denim Shirt

Fall 2008 H&M ad, featured in our 08′ Button It Up post

As mentioned in the latest trend report, Sir David Beckham is really putting the basic denim shirt back on the map. Though the reincarnation of this trend “officially” launched in Fall 2008, we’re just now (Fall/Winter 2009/2010) seeing the trendy rise of denim button-ups and “double denim” looks on stylish celebrities and urban gentlemen. Everyone may not be able to pull off double-denim looks (jean shirt + jean pants), but it’s easy to pair a denim shirt with khakis or black flat-front soft corduroy trousers.

If you don’t already have one, be sure to add atleast one denim shirt to your winter wardrobe.

City Art: Stephen Wiltshire, Artistic Genius

After posting the black and white aerial New York photos yesterday, we received a note from reader Mircrow about artist Stephen Wiltshire. After doing a little research we discovered his inspiring story… Stephen Wiltshire is a British artist who’s known for his amazingly detailed drawings of cityscapes. Stephen was born mute and was diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder at the age of three. At age four, Stephen was sent to a special needs school in London where he expressed an interest in drawing and began to communicate through his art, read more about his story here.
Drawings below include: New York City, Chicago, London, Venice, Sydney, Toronto, Westminster, and more.

Urban Gent LOOK BOOK: Winter Color.

For this look I was inspired to use a mildly monochromatic color palette and splashes of color.  It all began with the blue cotton button up with tab roll-up sleeves. I chose to pair the button-up with a lighter pair of distressed jeans, these have a unique paint design. The washed-out Diesel canvas hi-tops perfectly coordinate with the jeans– creating the base of the monochromatic look. Then the golden yellow cardigan was added, along with the red scarf for additional splashes of color. An all white watch and white wayfarers were added to complete the white color palette. And finally, the brown leather bag acts as optional accessory, creating a relaxed distressed winter look.

Get the look here:

2009 was definitely the year of slim fitting suits. While 2008 made slim fit an option, 2009 made slim fit  a must.
